My wife and I stayed at this Campground July 19th-23th 2015.  This is the closest campground to the Assateague causeway allowing access to the ocean and wildlife areas.  It is directly across from the lighthouse that can be seen at night. We bicycled over on several occasions with no problem because of bike trails and flat land.

This park is relatively large with over 150 sites.  It appears to be about 50% long term/seasonal and the remainder being broken up between tent camping and RV's.  There are old large pine trees over most sites for shade.  The bathhouses were old but maintained.  They have a well maintained pool and large open areas for kids to run and play.  The employees were very nice and accommodating. They picked up trash bags several times a day--necessary because the sea gulls would pick through them in no time. The town sprayed for bugs several times during our stay so they won't a problem. Lots of Good restaurants and Ice cream shops in the area.  Lots of kids as you would expect but noise wasn't a problem.

They seem to be limited in sites with sewer as the hookup have been retrofitted to their septic systems and they don't have the elevation differences to do the entire campground. As hot as it was with everybody's A-c running voltage stayed at 120+.  Site size should allow for multiple slides .  If you have a super long unit I would ask questions.

There are other Campgrounds in town that are more modern but you have to come through town to get to the beach.

Pluses:
Location,Location,Location
Shade
Access to town

Minuses:
Dated bath houses
$31 each way on Bridge tunnel flat towing a car. A consideration not of their making

All in all a pleasant experience and we would/will go back at some point.

Last October 6, Dad (now 78 years old) had his right hip replaced.  He did very well but we basically lost October with the exception of one weekend my younger brother took care of Dad so we could pack up our seasonal site (about 75% properly) as Mom is in no condition to help out like Dad needs.  Dad is waiting until November to get his left hip done!  This will put a damper on my early winter camping fantasies, but there's always mid and late winter!  At least we will be able to close out the lake place properly this year and no try to do three weekends worth of work in one!

After the last few 'googie' campgrounds that I have stayed at this past month I needed to go someplace nice to camp.  And I am glad that I stayed at Endless Caverns RV Resort near New Market, VA the night of 7/22/2015.  The weather was a bit cooler than it has been.  The place was immaculate.  Passport America rate was around $22.00.  The staff was friendly.  And they had every amenity available except cable TV.  But the Dish worked and one can get OTA reception from Harrisonburg, VA.  This campground is built into the side of South Massanutten Mountain.  It is terraced with large stones separating the 300 sites.  The pool was nice... and cold!  The bath houses were clean and modern.  The campground was only about 10% full on a Wednesday night the 3rd week of July.  There is pizza delivery available to this place.  I took the Caverns tour this morning.  I was the only person there so I had a private tour.  This should be a future VA Campers rally campground.  Anyway, I am happy that some good campgrounds do exist.  And Endless Caverns RV Resort is one of them!

I know Mike Breeze has stayed at both of these...wondering if anyone else has an opinion.  Probably looking at November for a weekend trip...http://www.greenvillecampground.com/ and http://www.nvrpa.org/park/bull_run/ .  They are both about 10 minutes away from the newest niece.

Greetings fellow campers,

The places we go, and the roads to these places, usually are far from rescue squads.  If someone gets hurt or becomes ill while on the road in a rural area, at camp, or off for a hike; it's a medical emergency and it'll be an hour or more before that person gets to a hospital, how will you care for your loved one during those critical first minutes or hours before professional help arrives / before you arrive at a hospital?

Learn how to save life and limb during those critical minutes or hours before hospital arrival, in this highly-acclaimed wilderness first aid course.
